The Profile Of A Muslim Beggar

The Profile Of A Muslim Beggar, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
I stopped shooting pictures , I am sedated with the sadness of our times , so many words on Tarun Tejpal , Arushi murder case on Aam Admi Delhi politics and the poor in our midst die unheard..I visit the Shastri Nagar slums of Bandra every day,..the unchanging Muslim world pushed into ghettos , and happy where they are ,..I am assuming they are happy , the owners tenants , the vendors , the butchers and the beggars ..

The poor I am told give generously to the poor ... the Muslim beggars get alms left over food in the slums ,,and the slums are three storey tin sheds with a wooden staircase ..children running haywire , the dinghy dirty filthy bylanes ..neglected by an innermost hate by the cvic authorities for Muslim ghettoes , the sweepers take an extra buck.. and life goes on.. till an epidemic breaks out or a fire breaks out,,,if a fire breaks out the local goons enter to capture plots and get it lega…

Muslim Beggars ..A Day Dawns

Muslim Beggars ..A Day Dawns, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

once perhaps
there were
good days
now all gone
soliloquy
solitude
chapters
all torn..
life at the
mercy of
the beggars
bowl forlorn
forgone
the soul withers
tattered battered
the spirit to live
withdrawn
..the hand
outstretched
to beg reborn
life goes on
the skull cap
asserts the humility
of this musalman

Dear Sir/Madam

It's with every sense of humility, sincerity and fairness do I implore this
medium to reach you at this time. In the first place, my names are
SACHIN PARAB

My father Mr. RAVIKANT PARAB Died in the hospital as a result of heart

some photos die
some photos gasp
for breath..
incriminating
cosmic chaos
beyond eternity
convulsive death
hope playing
hide and seek
on the internet
time of reckoning
has not come
in yet ,,as
the innards of
imagery frivolously
fumes and frets
god please dont
ever let me be
in another mans
charitable debt
forgotten moments
once we met ..
sometims it is
a silver lining
in disguise
ask and you
dont get
to be fair
lovely
beautiful
but dark dusky
instead ..

Que Sera, Sera,

Que Sera, Sera,, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be pretty, will I be rich
Here's what she said to me.

Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours, to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be.

if the BJP
comes to
power
the dreams
of the ruling
party will
turn sour
if the aam
admi party
of arvind
kejriwal
comes
to power
they will
perhaps
build hospitals
schools ,,
instead of iconic
towers ..
if the congress
regains
powers
once again
more happy
hours
sing is king
blissful
showers

on the toilet
seat of life
thinking
dreaming
as he cries
what will i
be when i
grow up
he rubs
his eyes
the day
time he
begs
on the
mound
of hope
filled
with flies
as one
day is
born
another
day dies
his white
shell of
a skin
held in
a cosmic
vice

I Shoot Albinos

i meet
them wherever
i go..on the
poetry of my
pedestrian
soul their
whiteness
overflows
yes cosmically
karmically
i was destined
to shoot the
albinos
said the
god of
whiteness
brightness
shoot them
up close
a moment
on my
timeline
i froze
white skins
pinkish eyes
blonde
eyebrows
trembling
fingers
trembling
toes
their pain
their pathos
their woes
